Special Lyrics

 

Sail Away
(Tret Fure)

There’s a longing in my heart
To see you in the morning
There’s a longing in my heart
To rest my face against your check
But I guess I’ll have to wait
Until that last great dawning
When I take that mighty boat across the sea

Sail away, I can almost see you smiling
Sail away, I can almost hear you breathe
Sail away, I will reach out for your hand
When I take that mighty boat across the sea

I’m staring at the phone
Wishing I could call you
Like I’ve done so many mornings
In the years you’ve been with me
But the phone would go unanswered
And I would be left hanging
Til I take the mighty boat across the sea

 

Wish You Were Here
(Mark Weigle)

I lie beside the sea and look up at the stars
With the sky this bright
Heaven doesn't seem so far
All it would take is my angel near
Wish you were here

Wide-eyed in the dark I get scared awake
When the dragons in my dreams
Are more than I can slay
I know my hero would conquer this fear
Wish you were here

When times are good
When life gets hard
When Im tired of being strong
When I want to drop my guard
I think of you and how far away you are
But in my heart how near
I wish you were here

Sometimes when I get tired
It doesn't take much at all
For my eyes to flow with rivers
That just drop in waterfalls
'Cause I have no shoulder to catch my tears
Wish you were here

On a sunny summer day I'm stealing free time
But no matter what fun I get away with
It's not quite the perfect crime
If I had my partner we'd be I the clear
Wish you were here

 

When You Care
(Steve Schalchlin - John Bettis)

There's a light holding us together
There's a light holding us all together
Some will say it's fate
Some will say it's life
The name doesn't matter, it just doesn't matter

There's a word stronger than the silence
There's a word stronger than any silence
Some will say it's love, some will say it's God
But everything changes, everything changes

When you care
When you care
You don't need an explanation when you care
Either you love or you don't
Either you will or you won't
You don't need an explanation when you care

Out of time
Everyone is running out of time
And the river goes on running
You can live every day. You can die every day.
Which way doesn't matter, it just doesn't matter

When a hand reaches in the darkness
When a hand touches you in the darkness
It might be a friend or someone you don't know
Which one doesn't matter, no, it just doesn't matter

When you care
When you care
you can only make a difference
when you care
Either you love or you don't
Either you will or you won't
You can only make a difference
when you care

It seems to me life's mystery
Is written in the language of the heart
We learn to read from what we need
And everything the poetry of living
Teaches us (teaches us )
It teaches us (teaches us)
Everyday it teaches us

When you care
When you care
You can only lift the darkness when you care
Either you love or you don't
Either you will or you won't
You don't need an explanation
(You don't need an explanation)
You can only make a difference
(You can only make a difference)
You can only lift the darkness when you care
When you care.

Terence Uphoff - Two Fathers

  

(English Lyrics):
We live in a terrace house
we have nice stuff at home
we live there quite OK with three of us together
Bas works for the newspaper
and Diedrick is laboratorian
they adopted me when I was one year old

I'm still the only child
but that's OK with me
that way I get all the attention and love from those two
Bas brings me to the school
with Diedrick I play violin
and with three of us we watch soaps on TV

I have two fathers
two real fathers
Sometimes cool and sometimes strict
but it's going great with us

I have two fathers
two real fathers
who, if they have to
both can be my mother

When I have to go to bed
Diedrick checks my homework
and Bas does the dishes or is doing laundry
And if I'm ill or have a fever
then there's nobody I know
who can be so caring as Diedrick or Bas

He has two fathers
two real fathers
Sometimes cool and sometimes strict
but it's going great with us

He has two fathers
two real fathers
who, if they have to
both can be my mother

Sometimes I get bullied at school
of course it's not nice
"You're parents, they are homo!"
They find it strange
Then I just shrug my shoulders
"So what! I'm their son!"
It's not ordinary
but for me it's quite OK

Two real fathers
Sometimes cool and sometimes strict
but it's going great with us

He has two fathers
two real fathers
who, if they have to
who, if they have to
both can be my mother
